Escrevi esse textinho na madrugada de hoje, voltando de Viena.
Já passa das 03 da manhã. Eu estou num ônibus que saiu de Viena às 21h em direção a Berlim e não consigo pensar em outra coisa que não seja o racismo europeu.

IT IS SO MUCH THAT IT DOES NOT FIT IN HERE: That is the sentence written in one of a multitude of posters that were occupying the streets during the mass protests of June 2013 in Brazil. The Brazilian insurgence, the Spanish 15-M and the resistances in the margins of Europe and the world do not fit in an exhibition, but the Brazilian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale has opened itself to the multitudes and has allowed the power of these multitudes to break through it. Continue reading Brecha Democrática – Venice, 10-11 October 2015
Transnational Dialogues’ European residency starts in Berlin this September (22-28/09), before continuing to Belgrade for the TRANSEUROPA Festival (1-5/10) and ending with a two-day event in Venice (10-11/10, details online soon). Artist, entrepreneurs, architects, researchers, designers, cultural managers and various individuals that live and work across Brazil, China and Europe will create a temporary space for exchange that reflects the programme’s transnational character (see profiles here and here).
You are welcome to join our first discussion and help us in shaping the future of Transnational Dialogues. Following last year successful event (see cover photo), we will go back to Kreuzberg Pavillon, one of Berlin best-known avantgarde venues for artistic exchange. Meet us there for a late coffee or an early drink from 5pm until 10pm on Sunday 27 September (registration is not necessary; feel free to pop up anytime). Transnational Dialogues is an open doors programme and we are always looking forward to new artistic and intellectual collaborations.

Phenomena of social exclusion and marginality manifest themselves more and more in how the urban environment is built and regulated. This long tradition of architecturally engineered segregation, from the Venetian ghettos to Rio de Janeiro’s favelas, is well alive and has been growing around the world according to the particularities of the local context, albeit having its unmistakable matrix in the flows of global capital. However, clusters of resistance to the model of the alienating global city are widespread. These groups of resistance elaborate models and produce tools for taking back the city to its inhabitants and reclaiming its ownership.

In 2015 and 2016, Transnational Dialogues will specifically research about the topic of marginality, seen from the duplex perspective of those who find themselves in and struggle to come out of it, and those who expressly look for it in order to escape from an unsatisfying mainstream condition of which they do not share the values. Among the different outputs, we intend to produce a video that reflects on the proposed theme.

In 2015 and 2016, Transnational Dialogues will specifically research about the topic of marginality, seen from the duplex perspective of those who find themselves in and struggle to come out of it, and those who expressly look for it in order to escape from an unsatisfying mainstream condition of which they do not share the values. Among the different outputs, one of the more relevant is going to be a publication in English (with subsequent translations in Chinese and Portuguese), consisting of a comparative study of theories, practices and policies around marginality in the artistic and cultural fields across the three regions.

In the occasion of the opening of the 56th Art Biennale in Venice, we present you once more an article by the curator of the Brazilian Pavilion, Luiz Camillo Osorio. The full article can be accessed in the Transnational Dialogues Journal 2014 (pp. 11-15, PORTUGUESE, CHINESE and ENGLISH).
To what extent can art continue to be art and simultaneously be politics? To what extent can the political intervention simultaneously be politics and point towards a heterogeneous sensible proper to art making? How to talk about this political pretension of arts or the artistic reverberation of politics, now that both artistic and political institutions are in crisis?
Em que medida a arte pode ser arte e ser ao mesmo tempo política? Em que medida a intervenção política, pode ser política e ao mesmo tempo sinalizar para um sensível heterogêneo próprio ao fazer artístico? Como falar desta pretensão política da arte ou da reverberação artística da política hoje quando as instituições artísticas e políticas estão em crise?
Luiz Camillo Osorio is Professor in the Philosophy Department of PUC-Rio and Curator of the Museum of Modern Art of Rio de Janeiro (MAM-Rio).

Two articles originating from past activities and current researches of Transnational Dialogues have been featured in the most recent publication “Exploit. Come rovesciare il mondo ad arte. D-istruzioni per l’uso”. The book originates from the experience of MAAM – Metropoliz, an impromptu museum located in the outskirts of Rome, which has been founded by anthropologist Giorgio De Finis, one of the book’s editors. Among the many contributors are Hans Ulrich Obrist, Chantal Mouffe, David Graeber, Dora Garcia, Cesare Pietroiusti, Annie Cohen-Solal and Lorenzo Romito.
